Terry Presley

On a three-way raised pot, around 21,000 chips were already in the middle.

The flop was showing {k-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{8-Hearts} when the player in the small blind checked. Terry Presley, chip leader of the table, with a stack worth around 400,000, bet 15,000 and it was called by the player on the button. The small blind announced all-in for a big stack worth 290,000, putting Presley into deep thinking.

"It would be crazy to lay down this hand," said Presley a few times, before sending a few chips in the middle for the call. The whole table stood up to look at the following showdown after the button folded:

Terry Presley:{q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
His opponent: {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Presley had the flush and the straight draw while his opponent held two pair. The {10-Clubs} on the turn brought more outs to Presley and the {5-Hearts} hit the river, giving him the flush to eliminate his opponent and claim a massive chip lead with a stack now around 600,000.
